Unbelievable… after copycats still stealing our designs from Society6, Cafepress and Zazzle the next can of worms has just been opened! Are you a designer/artist on Design by Humans (DBH)? Then you should definitely check out these Society6 members and “their” designs since they have stolen images right off DBH!

https://society6.com/search/prints?q=DBH+artist

I have just searched through one user (Isabeli) and clicked through over 80 pages of stolen and copied designs to find mine. And I have reported them to Society6, maybe you would like to do the same?

Here is the link to Society6’s contact page:

https://help.society6.com/hc/en-us/categories/200300807-I-m-an-Artist

I have chosen “Intellectual property concerns” and here is the message I have sent to Society6 so that you can use it as an example hoping to make it easier for you, especially when you are not good in English:

 

Dear Society6 Team,

I have been notified of other artists that the artwork we have uploaded to designbyhumans.com (DBH) has been stolen and uploaded to Society6 to several accounts.
Please take a look at my DBH profile and then find all artwork uploaded by Society6 user “Isabeli” as direct links. I request that you remove his/her account immediately. I will also send this message to DBH.

Please note that Isabeli is not the only one stealing our work, here you can find all infringing accounts:

I surely hope that Society6 will do something about this case of copyright infringement. DBH is informed and they say that they have also contacted Society6 on this topic and are waiting on a reply. I will try to keep you posted here, too!

I usually do not share anymore what I have sold on various print-on-demand websites but last night’s Zazzle sales made me happy. Someone is obviously planning a Santa Monica Pier themed birthday party 🙂

Happy Birthday Party - Santa Monica Pier themed

 

Shortly after opening my shop on Design by Humans (DBH) I already had a sale. It was a t-shirt with one of my favourite designs and of course it’s one of my famous Santa Monica Pier photo edits.

This is the shirt I was able to sell, I have earned $3 which I have already received via Paypal:

I have just opened a shop at Designs by Humans (DBH) this month. They are selling apparel, smartphone cases and art prints. There are two small disadvantages about DBH:

  1. Paypal verification for your shop costs $1
  2. You are limited to 60 designs in your shop

Apart from that I read from various sellers that they seem to sell mainly t-shirts. I am currently uploading the best of my designs to fill my shop. Please take a moment to check it out and please follow me. I am actively following back (on every site, by the way!).

While October had almost 40 sales, November had almost 60. Let’s take a look at them 🙂

Zazzle is one of the few print-on-demand websites where you can buy customized wallet cases. Here is what Zazzle is saying about these smartphone cases:

Form Factor: iPhone 6 Wallet Case

Customize a wallet case – a stylish, protective phone case and wallet all in one! The case is made to fit your most essential belongings on the left side and your iPhone 6 on the right side. Designed for convenience, the case gives you full access to the camera and all buttons and ports without removing the case. Personalize your wallet case with your photos, designs, and text. The wallet case carries everything you need while on the go!

  • Dimensions: 2.62″ x 5.87″ x 0.5″.
  • Made to fit the Apple iPhone 6.
  • Constructed with faux leather.
  • Designed with two card slots and one pocket.
  • Includes magnetic clasp for case closure.
  • Full access to buttons, ports, and camera.

Since my most popular design is the Santa Monica Pier in all kinds of colorful and funky variations, I’d like to present iPhone 6 wallet cases with this famous landmark as an example:

All wallet cases can also be made for Apple iPhone 5/5s and Samsung Galaxy S4! I myself have such a wallet case since they only cost about half of the “regular” cases but they also protect the display – which other cases don’t!

During August 2014 I was able to sell my first shower curtain on Society6:

The earnings are still pending, I really do hope I will receive the money.

Not too long ago I had posted about having created my first set on Polyvore. Little did I know back then that this would start my latest addiction! Polyvore is the best website for promoting my products for free since the invention of Pinterest and Wanelo!

I have added a lot of my products to the site (Polyvore acts as some kind of catalogue for fashionistas) but the BEST feature are sets and groups. Sets are similar to collages. You mix backgrounds, fonts, fashion, acessories and anything else decorative and the outcome are awesome collages like this one:

Seeing Things Clearly @ Polyvore "Seeing Things Clearly" - going to Church on a Sunday. #fashion #sunday #church #rosary #dress #dressup #holymass #paom #printalloverme

Seeing Things Clearly @ Polyvore
“Seeing Things Clearly” – going to Church on a Sunday.
#fashion #sunday #church #rosary #dress #dressup #holymass #paom #printalloverme

It’s not easy to create these right from the start but practice makes perfect and I find new features regularly. They also have templates for sets so that you only have to add your pictures and products – the background and decoration is already set. VERY useful!

If you would like to connect with me, please visit my Polyvore profile.

I can’t believe it, I have made my first sale on printallover.me (PAOM)! I had almost given up on that site since designing products is SO annoying but now I have earned over $9 with selling one baseball hat. Seems to be a keeper!

I am SO looking forward to more sales and will keep designing products, promised *g*

 

During the 7th week of 2013 I only managed to sell three items. I guess the “after Christmasonline shopping boom clearly came to a halt. And I could not do any advertising and marketing for over 2 weeks, so that might also be one reason why I only sold three things during that one week.

Anyway, here is what I have managed to sell:

I seriously cannot imagine any week without selling this design on any product anymore *lol. This is so hilarious, I LOVE this photo and the different photo edits in various colours!
